A Brown County man was arrested after authorities said he dated and had an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

Gregory Jones, Jr., 24, was arrested on charges of sexual misconduct, a Class C felony, and possession of child pornography, a Class D felony.

The Brown County Sheriff’s Department began their investigation into Jones after the girl’s father reported that he suspected the two were involved in sexual activity. According to court documents, the teen said she met Jones last summer and they began dating.  She stated her father did not approve, so she ended her relationship with Jones.  However, she said she later saw Jones at a wedding and the two began dating again.

The probable cause affidavit revealed Jones gave the girl a promise ring and said he wanted to marry her.  Additionally, Jones designed a tattoo that featured his and the teen’s birthdays.

The investigation also found approximately 2,000 text messages that were exchanged between Jones and the teen.  Some of those messages included naked photos, stated the affidavit.

A jury trial has been scheduled for July 17.

    Ha! What a romancer…a fancy tattoo with their birthdays in it.

    Glad to hear of a father who doesn't have his head completely stuck in the sand and DID something. I hate hearing news of stories like this, and I hope that my own commitment to my kids upbringing is strengthened. So often these kids are just looking for something they can't / haven't found, and it's so sad that (alleged) criminals are the ones that will offer it to them.

      Sounds to me like that description hits home with you, Jeanie.
      Kind of hard to take your post seriously when it's barely decipherable. They did teach you sentence structure and punctuation in school, didn't they?

      Kels, first of all' no one cares how old you are, age doesnt make you "mature" how're you going to get on here and talk crap about people calling other people names and you're telling people to go die in a ditch and calling this young man a dumbass? Hypocritical much? Just shows your maturity.

    well , it says after they first broke up they met up again at a wedding …. maybe they are family ?

    Really! Couldn't they just have given him a warning and fined him? It sounds like she was a willing partner even though she knew her dad did not approve. There are so many more serious things going on in this world.
